Kennaday Peak Fire Lookout

Carbon County Wyoming is the place to go if you are looking for wide open spaces and low populations - perfect for folks who need a break from crowds.

Let's explore one of those places: The Kennaday Peak Lookout Tower is located in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest. The fire tower is located atop Kennady Peak and to the east of Saratoga, Wyoming. The lookout sits at an altitude of 10,788 ft (3,288 m) and features a breathtaking view of the surrounding area including Barrett Ridge, the Platte River Valley, Pennock Mountain, Elk Mountain and Medicine Bow Peak.

A weekend escape to Saratoga, Wyoming

When it comes to vacation, I love a place that combines the outdoors with relaxation.

I had driven the scenic byway between Laramie and Rawlins, Wyoming before and knew that spending a few nights somewhere in between was a must. Surrounded by the Medicine Bow National Forest, I knew that Saratoga would be the perfect destination. Eliza and I headed out early, left the traffic and city behind for the mountains with our swimsuits and fly rods in tow.

Unwinding in Carbon County, Wyoming

Southern Wyoming is one of America’s best kept secrets.

While much of the state’s tourism is contained in the national parks in the north, the southern half of the state enjoys a slower lifestyle. Driving along any of the highways connecting the small towns in Carbon County is reminiscent of the true Old West; dude ranches galore and fly fishing without competition.
